Tracing Donatello's "wild blood" (1045), Ae narrator gives in excessive detail a lineage that combines an Italian "genealogy" with what are stressed as "altogether mythical" origins. The result is that genealogy itself becomes a matter of myth — though this is not to say that all that is inherited is merely mythic. The elaborate pedigree makes race a matter of every and any kind of human category: the "scattered qualities of his race" (1046) include an inherited "family character," a family history, a class identity, a nationality, a "pre-historic" tribal identity ("the Pelasgic race," men of "Asiatic birth"), and a "wild paternity" of acknowledged myth.
The crime and the remorse it instills create in Donatello a "thousand high capabilities" that make him tragically but fully human.
